Thank you for visiting our website. We invite you to browse, and submit a question or comment if you wish.

NOTICE: Keys were found at St. Isidore's Church in Stow following the services for Mr. Painter on Wednesday October 2nd.  To claim the keys please call the church at 978-897-2710 or the funeral home at 978-263-5333.

The "Thoughtful Guidance"  difference; we are a full service funeral home.  Many of our packages include certified copies of the death certificate, and no matter the level of service you choose we will help obtain certified copies and submit newspaper notices. The cost of these non-funeral home costs are not marked up.  All families may choose to have an online memorial page that remains active in our archives and may be linked to your social media accounts at no additional cost.  We are on call 24/7 and have years of experience and knowledge to help your family.  You aren't expected to go it alone.

Important to know:  When a death occurs please call the funeral home at 978-263-5333; please do not rely on email or texts to contact us for the first notification call as the situation is too important and urgent to rely on electronic transmissions. The funeral home phone line is answered 24/7 by our funeral directors or an answering service rep.  Pre-Need pages: If you take the time to complete a pre-need information record, we also ask that you also please call the funeral home at 978-263-5333 to confirm receipt. 

Looking for a memorial page or to post an online condolence message? Listings are on the right  of this page. For current services use the arrows at the bottom of the list to see additional pages.   For a past service click on "Past Services." Type the name in the search bar to find the record.  All our memorial pages complete with obituaries, tributes and photos are archived at no cost to families.                                                                                                                     

VERY IMPORTANT: A Word about Flowers:  In Massachusetts regulations prohibit funeral homes to sell flowers or receive compensation for floral purchases. We do not offer that service from our web site.  Many of the newspaper and online obituary sites connect to us when we submit the notice and/or post a memorial page. They may offer floral sales on their pages, and often people mistakenly believe we endorse their products.  However to ensure quality work, prompt service and timely delivery, we encourage people to order flowers directly from local brick and mortar florist shops. You may call the funeral home at 978-263-5333 and we can provide the name and number of the florist that the family has chosen.

WHY CHOOSE ACTON FUNERAL HOME?  Because we are a part of the community and support local organizations.  This month we are supporting the One Angel Foundation established to honor the memory of Jenna Agule, "Bringing Hope and a Smile to Children Worldwide."  Saturday October 19th, 2019  is their 9th Annual World Hike a Mountain Day hosted at Wachusett Mountain in Princeton. If you can't join the crew at Wachusett, you may participate in your own way by hiking your favorite mountain, walk a trail, stroll along the beach or do an urban adventure.  Please visit oneangelfoundation.org for more information. 


Prearrangement is a gift to your family, sparing them from hard decisions at an emotional time. Learn more aboue this practical & loving gesture.
